Thank you for dropping by!
You might want to look around, read about the Igorot Gremlin as he roams around the United Arab Emirates where the family currently stays. Once in awhile there's about Baguio or anything in between. And most of the times, it's about the growing Gremlin, his gremly Mom and gremly Dad =)
The Gremlin -- malikot/ makulit/ magulo/ madaldal/ malambing -- always amazes the Gremly Mom and Dad, and this blog is their exclamation of their gratefulness for their Blessing.
KALEL MOSAIAH, the name
Staying here in an Arab nation, Kalel is mostly thought of as "Khalil" and related to a Muslim name. Smallville followers would however guess it right that it came about from Kal El -- Superman's (planet) Krypton name. On a side note, 'Khalil' in Arabic means 'Friend'
Mosaiah, on the other hand, is his Igorot name. It could be simply spelled as Mosaya, however his Lola Cute suggested giving a fix on the spelling. (Igorots usually have traditional/ cultural names and each place/ province holds its own reference/ meaning. Mosaya is from Sagada, Mountain Province where new borns are 'baptised' their Igorot names from one of the ancestral names. If the root is not that far, anyone who bears the same name is assumed as a relative from the same lineage). The Gremlin's Mom is baptised 'Duno'.
Now the fuss on being an Igorot
Igorots are the mountain dwellers of northern Philippines and make up indigenous tribes identified strongly by their own cultures and traditions. The Gremlin's lineage is of pure Igorot (Ifugao, Mountain Province and Ibaloi of Benguet).
There's nothing different of being an Igorot, only thing is, they had always been and are still subjected to discrimination and ridicule because of the misconception that partly stems and started from erroneous history books. They are thought to have tails, (one may not mind the descriptions of curly hair, short, dark brown complexioned, flat nose-d, hairy), untidy, uneducated/ morons, uncivilized. Can you now picture an incomplete evolution of animals to humans? This blog is an advocate to correct these misconceptions.
This Igorot blogger feels like her mind is aging so fast, that her vocabulary is way way wider when she was in sixth grade (thank you Saint Louis School Center =) ) . She takes too long to compose a business email which drags her confidence down. Hence, she hopes to keep Alzheimer’s disease away by blogging.
